Atham-areny are spirits that are found where there is no fire. Atham-areny are said to come into communities and take children, and if one touches a person they will begin to feel ill. If one is infected by an Atham-areny a witch doctor must be called. Angelina’s works depict women and children in ceremonial body paint dancing and singing to assist the witch doctor to chase away the sickness.
